Starts after driving a mile. Goes away when I accelerate, and sometimes when breaking, but worse when I coasting. Putting it in neutral doesn't affect sound. Put new wheel bearing on from auto zone, but does the same thing. Frustrated, took to Belle Tire and paid $40 for them to look at it, and they said it was that bearing I replaced?


Another bad thing, I think it's alittle more inboard at times.... Hope its not trans. 2005 Five hundred with 100k, AWD with CVT trans.


New brakes a month ago, caliper, rotor, pads.


Very frustrated. I've owned fords 30 years, second taurus, and can't figure this out.

Well I just had a similar noise.... Mine ended up being rust build up on the caliper bracket that caused the pads to stick. Might be worth at least looking at

Changed wheel bearing again, so it's not that. almost like a repeating rubber squeegee with it. Goes away when I accelerate or turn right.Could it be that cv shaft?

It does sound like a CV issue. I had a moaning noise (more pronounced while cruising - 07 vulcan)- Changed the wheel bearing assemblies and ball joints - no difference - changed one CV - half of the noise was gone, changed the other one - all gone. It was a a PITA to diagnose that. While you're at it, you may want to change the sway bar links too as mine broke the next day after those hefty repairs - lol
